In English language there are vowels and consonants. Likewise, in Malayalam also there are vowels and consonants. The difference is that in Malayalam all the vowels appear in the beginning and the consonants form another group. The standard Malayalam alphabet has 15 vowels and 42 consonants, and a few other symbols.
Let's start with vowels.
In Malayalam vowels and diphthongs are marked in two ways. The first one is an independent vowel, which is used at the beginning of a syllable. The second one is dependent vowel, which is used when the vowel follows a consonant.
In Malayalam, they are called `vyanjan (व्यंजन)`. They are normally considered to have a basic form which consists of a consonant pronounced with an inherent ‘a’ sound. The table below shows 38 consonant letters and their pronunciation.
Malayalam numerals are the symbols used to write numbers in the Malayalam script. They are used to write decimal numbers, instead of the latin numbers.
